Thomas Clark Nelson does an excellent job of showing the statutory history of what has taken place. With that being said he wrongly assumes there is a Constitution for the United States of America. The organic "this" Constitution of 1787 re the perpetual Union is never adopted when George Washington, and every President since, has failed to take the Art 6.3 oath to support "this" Constitution, and instead took the Art 2.1.8 oath to "the" Constitution of the United States under Art 4.3.2. Because neither the President nor the Congress of the United States has taken the proper oath to adopt "this" Constitution, the Articles of Confederation is still the Law of the Land of the perpetual Union. Thomas' work is flawed not only for this reason but also for the number of States of the United States he lists in his work. There are actually 57 States of the United States which include the so-called 50 States and the 7 "States" listed in 42 USC 1301 only. He also incorrectly states in his work it is impossible to have interstate commerce between 2 States of the United States. I would suggest Thomas study what Dr. Eduardo Rivera has brought to light and edit his work accordingly.

When Archimedes said, “Give me a lever and a place to stand, and I will move the Earth”, he may have been referring to this work. This latest legal tract from Thomas Clark Nelson, "Purging America of the Matrix", is nothing short of stupefying in the most complimentary sense of the word. Like a magician, Nelson, mystifies with his bag of tricks, but unlike a magician, he achieves his audience’s awe by REVEALING rather than obscuring the source of the vexing illusion.
"Purging" is nothing less than an elegant rapier with which, by its mere possession and basic comprehension of its utility, one might terminably prick the most persistent of otherwise ostensibly threatening legal balloons, making of demands to pay and summary judgments alike so much useless latex scrap. If God made man, and Samuel Colt made them equal, then Thomas Clark Nelson may have just tipped the scales in favor of the little guy.
To open and close with Archimedes, T. L. Heath’s 1931 review of the Greek mathematician’s work serves as well a review of Nelson’s contribution in his field as the ancient revelatory tracts in theirs: “Archimedes’ treatises are, without exception, monuments of mathematical exposition; the gradual revelation of the plan of attack, the masterly ordering of the propositions, the stern elimination of everything not immediately relevant to the purpose, the finish of the whole, are so impressive in their perfection as to create a feeling akin to awe in the mind of the reader.”
